Apple has released iMovie ’11 9.0.9, a small update for the video editing app that is nearing its third birthday (the iLife ’11 suite was originally released on 20 October 2010). This update squashes a bug that prevented iMovie from recognizing video cameras connected to your Mac and improves compatibility with projects that are imported from iMovie for iOS. Finally, it also includes unspecified stability improvements. ($14.99 new from the Mac App Store, free update through Software Update or the App Store app, 1.08 GB)
Thoughtful, detailed coverage of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, plus the best-selling Take Control ebooks.
